ARGcast #14: Catching Pokemon with Glass Knuckle’s James Johnston
James chats with us about Glass Knuckle’s titles past, present, and future, as well as his own wild and crazy ideas. Ever wanted to date a sentient hamburger? Are you wondering what other crazy turn the Phoenix Wright games could take? You gotta listen up to find out!
We also get into the nitty gritty of the latest phenomenon that is Pokemon GO. Why is it so popular? Can it keep up the momentum? How does this bode for the future of Pokemon and Nintendo’s foothold in the mobile market? Be sure to let us know your thoughts! The show then closes up with chat about Ghostbusters games throughout history, from the awful NES title to the more playable 2009 release. What is your favorite Ghostbusters game?
